It rained the day before we went so there were a few muddy spots, but nothing bad. Easy enough to do with my 3 kids - age 9,7&5. Not a lot to climb on but the trail was nice and shaded and a good hike.

The Archgrounds and riverfront are a great place for some easy, scenic jogging. Great scenery if it is a nice day. You can watch this video I recorded of a run here to get the idea of what to expect https://youtu.be/MOnz3tDDCkM

The arch is amazing to go and see. As is the old courthouse and the area nearby. If you’re in St. Louis this is a must!

If you’re visiting St Louis, you’re likely to stroll through this park. From views of the churning River, subtle skyline juxtaposed against the most miraculous contemporary shape that is the arch, it’s easy to see why this area draws attention. The city has done a lot of good for this area in recent years. Cheers to Missouri for entering the National Park big leagues

Nice little park! Beautiful views of the arch. The trees are changing colors this time of year. Go Cardinals.

Beautiful park around the Gateway Arch. The Arch is incredible and the views from the top of the Arch are amazing.

Arch and homeless. That's all I have to say. If you want drugs, take this trail. Also, there is a big curved Arch.

With the grounds of the Arch under renovation, it can get very hot in a Missouri Summer.

Nice walk along the river while going to the arch and visiting the downtown area. Great little walk, but as mentioned, they are doing a lot of work in the area.
